Sailing Is a Romantic Recreation

Sailing Is a Romantic Recreation

Like many people the draw of the open water attract me to want to learn how to sail. Although I have only been on a couple of boats there is definitely something romantic about taking a yacht out onto the San Francisco Bay and hoisting the sails. Personally I prefer the lure of the sail boats over the power boats that race across the surface of the water. Being able to work the rigging and manipulate the wind is much more appealing than setting the throttle of a speed boat and racing over the waves. While I may never own a yacht and have no idea what I am doing when it comes to things of a nautical nature I do know that I can learn sailing. San Francisco Bay is a great place to take to the open waters and with an expert captain guiding my efforts I have found that I can hire a sail boat and learn how navigate the waves with a few lessons.

While I prefer to know how to sail there are others who only want to enjoy the relaxing caress of the waves as they are sailing San Francisco Bay aboard a 37 foot yacht. Enjoying the quiet serenity of the water and the sounds of the wind that catch the sails, there are people that enjoy taking a long leisurely cruise on a sailing yacht on the weekend. Leaving the work of navigation up to the experienced captain, the joy of picnicking on board a private vessel is appealing to many people that want to escape the city. With the salt air and cooling breezes that are enjoyed by sailing, San Francisco residents and tourists are given a memorable cruise around the bay and harbor.
